When teachers learn to use these algorithms, they can identify difficulties and help children close their learning gaps. It is really exciting stuff!
Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
Wynn Godbold, founder of Bee Sharp, is set to discuss alternate algorithms for teaching students at the NCTM regional conference.
“I am excited to share the power of these algorithms with teachers,” said Godbold. “Learning this non-traditional method of doing math is new for many teachers. Although the algorithms have been around for years, they are not widely known.”
Godbold’s presentation, “Use Alternate Algorithms to Improve Teaching and Learning,” is scheduled for Friday Oct. 18 from 11-12 in Key Ballroom 5 in the Hilton.
The session will help teachers by giving them four alternate algorithms to teach their students. Godbold will investigate and discuss how these algorithms expose students’ strengths and weaknesses enabling teachers to effectively tailor instruction to increase students’ mathematical understanding.
Godbold adds, “The beauty of them is that they allow teachers to hone in on weaknesses in students' understandings- more so than traditional algorithms. When teachers learn to use these algorithms, they can identify difficulties and help children close their learning gaps. It is really exciting stuff!”
The NCTM Baltimore conference is Oct. 16-18 at the Baltimore Convention Center and the Hilton Baltimore. Interested parties can register for the conference by visiting http://www.nctm.org/baltimorereg/.
